God promised the Children of Israel rest but most never entered in. Hebrews 4 tells us we may find ourselves in the same situation without faith. “For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.” If we find ourselves in an uproar and our peace drained away could it be we aren’t walking in faith? Maybe we “know” what the Bible says but we aren’t walking in it.
God has promised us rest also and tells us it is only found in Christ. The key to this rest is the word “Today.” We can only have it today for today we can’t look too far down the road in anticipation because God promised us “Today-right now- if you will hear his voice, and not harden your hearts.” After all the reason for a lack of rest is because we are failing to live in the moment isn’t it? God is an ever-present God and his rest is for “Right now.” When tomorrow comes he will provide the “Right now” rest we need but until then take a deep breath ahhhh, and rest in him.
